Islam-Inspired Swimwear
« on: September 01, 2006, 12:27:09 AM »
Hi Everyone,

As a nudist and an Atheist, I am always amazed at how the worlds major religions view the human body.


"Turkish businessman Mehmet Sahin has designed what he says is the world's first Islam-inspired swimsuit and sells head-to-ankle bathing gear to devout well-heeled Muslims, including the wives of Turkey's leading politicians."

Wow. I don't even know what to say to that.

I remember when I was young and in some bible camp, we were told that God didn't like us to wear two piece bathing suits. I remember thinking all that modesty bullshit was just wierd.

For a God who is apparently asexual, he sure has a fixation on people's plumbing and it's display thereof.

Oh yeah, Fuck god, allah, jehovah, zeus, jebus, etc. up their collective asses. Yes I spelled them without capitalizing to further add insult to them. Assholes.

I have always wondered why theists condemn the human body. Has there ever been a study that religion makes people ugly?

Causation or coincidence?

Or maybe it's that ugly people are drawn to religion...

Well I guess they figured they're probably not going to get laid, might as well make up an excuse as to why.

Court, Mac, Spiralexit, Tom and Joe,

Let me back up. Maybe I am not so amazed. I think that religionists tend to wrongly equate all nudity (or even limbs uncovered) as sexuality. And those same religionists believe that individual choice on sexuality is something to be controlled and often denied.

I think that I would have reacted by supressing the reaction to laugh
